You scroll through your emails, feeling excited. It isn’t the boring missives that uplift your mood, but the anticipation of something new. After years of hard work, starting as a department head all the way up to being a managing director of family-owned hotel chains, you’ve proven yourself a capable leader. More importantly, you have amassed a sum of funds in addition to your parents’ approval and support to start a business of your own. Numerous discussion and planning have all led to this moment.

“Your two o'clock appointment is here, Miss.”

“Show him in, Yun Hee,” you tell your assistant.

The phone receiver barely hits its cradle when a few polite knocks sound at your door. “Come in,” you beckon as you hurriedly finish replying to an email. “Excuse me for a minute while I finish this.”

“No problem,” a warm,  familiar voice answers you.

Your fingers freeze a few millimeters above the keyboard, but your head swivels towards the owner of the voice. For a fraction of a second, you’re afraid that after so long, you’ve started to hear his voice out of nowhere again, even though he is not in your life anymore. However, this time your ears are not deceiving you, nor are you imagining things.

“Jungkook?”

Have a fluffy Yooran oneshot inspired by a headcanon I shared with @mysticmessengervibes about Saeran being really good with kids.



Yoosung wasn’t exactly out to his family.  He wasn’t exactly in the closet either.  Mostly the Kim family simply didn’t talk about the elephant in the room.  Or rather the 5’6” pastel punk that was never more than an arms length from Yoosung anytime his family visited. 

After weeks of hand wringing and Saeran telling him repeatedly that it wasn’t a big deal, Yoosung had decided that he was definitely going to bring his boyfriend home for Easter.  This time, he promised, he would hold his hand and answer honestly if anyone asked.

Definitely.

Probably.

If they asked.

The moment they’d stepped off the train he’d changed his mind.  His face had paled and he’d frozen.

“We should just go back.  We can— we can order pizza and buy discount chocolate,” Yoosung says, tightening his grip on Saeran’s hand, eyes glued to the exit.

“You want to just sit her until the next train then?”  Saeran’s voice was irritated but if Yoosung had bothered to look at him he would have seen the grin on his face.  If you couldn’t tell the Choi’s were twins all they had to do was grin like that.

“Yes,” Yoosung huffs.  He drops Saeran’s hand to better hug his bag and sits defiantly in one of the hard plastic chairs.

Saeran runs a hand through his hair and tries not to laugh.  “I’ve already met your parents,” he says softly.  “You don’t have to tell them if you’re not ready, I don’t mind.”

The station is busy with people coming home for the holiday and while the two boys are not causing a scene they do garner a few curious looks.

“I mind,” Yoosung mumbles into his bag, lavender eyes flicking up to finally look at Saeran.

anonymous asked:

Ok I know people don't like Messer for the things she says in interviews but is there a deeper reason that I just haven't been around long enough to pick up on? She seems kinda... hated (?) for just some poorly thought-out sound bites.

okay, a little history.

though erica has been with cm since the beginning, she didn’t become co-showrunner until 2010. you know what else started in 2010? season six. now, to be clear, no one blames her for all the shit that went down re: the ladies, that is 110% on cbs execs and pretty much everything that has gone wrong since 2010 can be traced back to their ~grand~ idea that was criminal minds: suspect behavior in some way or another.

she became a co-runner, presumably because ed bernero, the showrunner from the beginning of the series, was full timing for suspect behavior. chris mundy was also taken over to suspect behavior. they were argueably two of the best writers on the team (the fisher king 1&2, aftermath, sex birth death, profiler profiled, the big game/revelations, gideon’s exit episodes, legacy, penelope, lo fi, the instincts, masterpiece, demonology, to hell, and back, nameless faceless…to name a few lol) and from what i saw of ed during s6 (which is when i came into the fandom, lucky me), he was a good showrunner, in terms of talking to the press, though idk how much actual control he had over the show. considering seasons 1-5 compared with 6, i assume he had very little control. iirc, erica did not speak with the press or had very little contact with them.

when suspect behavior got canceled in 2011, ed and chris were fired. yes, instead of moving two of their best writers back to the main show - which, reminder, was suffering - they fired them. again, 110% on cbs execs and their ~grand~ idea for a spin-off that inevitably didn’t work bc they didn’t understand why cm was so popular.

BUT during most of this, i feel like fandom was somewhat comforted by the fact that they passed the torch to someone who had been there since the beginning (esp since they hired a handful of new writers for s6 who, btw, were not required to watch the prior seasons and the characters have obviously suffered for it) and who had, arguably, written a decent number of okay-to-good episodes as well. i remember a few of us looking up her eps during the summer between s6 and s7 and being like “okay, maybe it won’t be too bad.”

now. a quick reminder. a showrunner holds the “ultimate management and creative authority” for a tv show (thx wikipedia).

so. when a show takes a creative dive that appears to mostly be due to execs trying to ~stir shit up~ for shits and giggles instead of leaving a very profitable show in the capable hands of its original showrunner, reasonable people tend to put the blame on the execs. as such, i don’t blame her for a lot of the missteps that happened in season 6. even some of the stuff that was clearly the showrunners’ decisions is forgivable because it makes sense within the bts context. for instance, barely giving any characterization to seaver makes sense because they needed to focus on characters we already knew/loved who were leaving and they thought they could develop her character in s7.

but when the network execs stop mucking around where they don’t belong and the show doesn’t really turn it around, the blame starts falling rather squarely on the showrunner’s shoulders because they are in charge of the direction the show goes. it’s like when people talk about shonda in relation to grey’s or scandal. yes, she doesn’t write every episode, but she sure as hell is the one who plots out where the show is heading and she has final say. that’s erica’s role on cm. she plots. she has final say.

so when you get poorly plotted episodes (what the actual fuck was season 9’s openner and finale episodes???), episodes that don’t fit the tone or message of the show (THIRTEENTH STEP GE T OUT), poorly placed episodes (a ~fake rape~ case after morgan’s final confrontation with buford, route 66 being 2-3 seasons too late), characterization that doesn’t make sense…yes, a lot of that is on the writers, but ultimately, erica could veto that stuff. erica knows what good finale cliffhangers look like because she was there for all of the really good finales…and yet we keep getting shitty ones.

so. there’s that.

and i think “some poorly thought-out soundbites” is…an understatement, especially the…“some”…portion. three and a half seasons as full time showrunner = plenty of soundbites that could go horribly wrong. you have to remember too…all of the things she says to the media are things that are ultimately under her control, so it’s not just her missteps in wording. when she announces, for instance, that we won’t find out how prentiss feels about having to fake dead until episode TWELVE…that’s generally more about the content of said announcement (content that, again, she has control over), regardless of how she words it. when she says reid/maeve ~will be a relationship like nothing we’ve ever seen~ and then they fridge maeve…well, that’s a double punch (triple punch?) in the gut.

other issues:

  • drops just about every spoiler that the cbs promo’s don’t or drops them in tandem. not cool.
  • girl shipbaits like no one’s business. thing is…rule has been from s1…no on the team is hooking up with anyone else on the team. literally a show rule. so her shipbaiting takes on an extra level of aggravation because she riles people up (many of whom do not know about this rule) only to have them be let down time and time again. not cool. also, the actors end up getting practically harassed by it as well. pretty much every interview, shemar has to say that morgan and garcia are like siblings. extra not cool.
  • similarly, fanservice. my stance? i want the show to make me happy because the characters are in character, they are engaging, and the story is engaging. if that means i start squealing like a tiny child because morgan is teaching reid to hit a ball? COOL. if i’m seeing morgan half-naked in a towel for some ill-conceived and ooc drama (with a dose of shipbaiting on the side)? NOT COOL.

finally, a more direct explanation of reasons i was not okay with the latest announcement:

  • i’m still aggravated as hell about last season’s “jj doesn’t have ptsd bc she’s a strong woman” and “that story is over with” (very) poorly worded soundbites
  • which makes this feel like she’s only doing it because fans complained
  • which i could maybe be okay with
  • (because, really, the idea that someone could be waterboarded, beaten severely, and sexually assaulted and then be 100% fine is so incredibly unrealistic and is totally lazy writing)
  • except between the things she AND aj said last year, i’m severely worried that things are gonna fall flat and just feel fake
  • so i’m already not looking forward to this because i have very little faith in it being done well
  • then you’ve also got erica saying jj and reid are gonna hash it out
  • and saying she “loves” jj and reid’s relationship
  • personally, in recent seasons, i haven’t seen that supposed love she has for their relationship from the way they’ve been written
  • because reid doesn’t seem close to her at all
  • and because jj’s reactions to reid come off as antagonistic and passive aggressive
  • and i like the idea that their relationship never fully recovered from jj keeping the secrets she kept
  • that’s interesting character development to me
  • i think it’d be much more interesting to have her hash it out with hotch whose ptsd is more recent
  • (since apparently reid’s near death experiences have happened so often that he is no longer affected by it!!!)
  • and whom she used to have a closer relationship with before she was a profiler
  • as it stands, it currently feels more like shipbaiting/fanservice than actual storytelling
  • especially because 200’s massive plot holes make it feel like fanservice and basing fanservice on fanservice just seems like a downward spiral
  • which is really disappointing
  • so far, i’ve been pretty satisfied with this season and the idea that this is could crash and burn for even more reasons than before is disheartening
  • so yeah

TL;DR - if you’re new-ish to the fandom or at least new-ish to the behind the scenes stuff, then yeah, i feel like there’s some stuff you’ve missed. clearly.

The manga’s over, Gaiden’s over, I don’t particularly care about the movie


BUT I’M FUCKING SCARED OF THE UPCOMING SS INTERACTIONS IN THE ANIME. There’s plenty of things that could go wrong like:

In this scene SP might make it that Sasuke is thanking Obito (or the jacket) instead of Sakura and delete the eye smex!

THEY MIGHT DELETE THAT SMILE

AND ALSO THAT SHIFT IN HIS STEPS TO SHOW HOW HE HESITATED

AND THESE INTENSE SS SCENES

I’M SCARED. HOLD ME FRIENDS

it’s too late (to love pistachio cupcakes now); april 21, 2019

Teddy’s fingers were blue and green, but at least he was laughing, which was more than I could say for Jane, who had a frown on her face that could challenge  Harry’s snarl. I was big on traditions, so even though the kids were older and I was no longer living with them, we still spent the night before Easter dying eggs.
